Next up is to make the front washer sling swivel. Already have an idea of how I'm going to do it in mind. If it turns out well I'd be happy to make one for anyone else that'd want one, here's looking at you dsbock.

We'll want to see pics of the finished result and how you did it, of course.

Don't forget to silver solder one of these bases on to your cut down Remington 11 barrel

Remington raised front sight base for shotguns

Keeps you to the original point of aim. I tried cutting my Remington model 11 with just a bead and it was off and added this and it was back to normal.

If they use the same thread pattern as the Browning Auto 5, Brownells has a few magazine tube caps in stock both with and without the swivel.

I may be ordering one soon along with the friction ring parts.

The Remington 11 has the same magazine threads as the 870/1100.
Perhaps one of their magazine tube caps will work?

Yes the thread pattern is the same as 870/1100, in fact you can use factory 870 extensions on the 11 and the Savage 720, 745 series as well. I just checked my 11 and Savage today.

Do you think this shotgun is legit ?
Looks phony to me but I'm far from an expert. For one thing, I don't think they ever made a Model 67 in Trench Gun style, for another GHD was a WW II inspector, not VN era

I'm going with phony too. You're right about the inspector mark.
Link Posted: 2/3/2017 8:45:03 PM EDT
Somebody should prolly call the guy out on it. Somebody is going to pay a lot of money for that , but I guess they should do their homework first.

Looks like a faux trench - Although I do like the looks of the 67 with the Heat Shield - Why didn't I think of that? Certainly makes the 67/77 series look better even though I don't think they were ever factory outfitted in that config.

I finally received replacement recoil parts for my 1920 vintage Model 11 Remington.  Brownells was out of the recoil spring for a while.  I now have a new recoil spring, friction piece, friction spring, and friction ring for my shotgun.  Actually, I got two of each since I also have a Savage 720.

Even better, while I was getting everything put together (thanks to Pat Sweeney for the proper order of friction ring assembly), my wife brought me a bowl with left over melted chocolate from the chocolate covered strawberries she made for dessert.  This is after making cocktail sauce for the shrimp appetizer.  She's making steak with baked potatoes for dinner.  If I hadn't already gotten her to marry me, I'd propose again.

Next on the project list is shortening the barrel and moving the front sight to the new muzzle.  After that sling swivels, metal clean up, and re-finishing.

It's good to have a winter project.

OOOOHH! I always wanted that over folder Remington police stock and shotgun. I have seen a few but didn't want to spend $100 for the stock. Still very cool. How is it in practical use? I tried a Mossberg 590 and a heavy over folder POS. Hated both and sold both. Only shotgun I ever sold.

Its actually not bad to shoot with 2 3/4 loads - I normally use Remington and Suprema buck as they are cheap and not too stout. 3" Buck loads are a little more stout in the metal stock. Surprisingly, its not uncomfortable as other stocks, but Cheek weld sucks in the cold though - its metal. However, it is not as comfortable as a fixed stock. I have a spare Police Walnut set for this gun as well. Shooting from the grip (stock collapsed) isn't practical but have used it just for fun shooting it that way.

Does anybody know what the proper stock screw for a Stevens 77E G.I. stock? I'm working on a clone and need the right length stock screw. The original stock screw that was attached to my 67F is about an inch too long.....
Link Posted: 2/23/2017 4:41:59 PM EDT
not sure I had to cut down the the outside of a washer to fit in my USGI stock the aluminium stock  civilian screw was just a little long to tighten up on the GI stock not at home or Id look

Finally finished with my Stevens 77E clone.....still need to parkarize (along with the 1200's barrel and action bars).....but happy with the results thus far......

You need to acquire a USGI handguard and stock for the M1200, check Ebay or gunbroker.

My issue 1200 had the same stock and forearm, along with several others while in Kosovo.....

Rico, great collection. That Ithaca has me drooling! I have 2 but they are hunting shotguns. I missed an oiled stock, parkerized, no field scene reciver shotgun for 180 like new at a pawn shop 10 years ago. I hate passing up deals when I know I will regret it.

Dupage Trading, click on rifle stocks. You're welcome.

Also, when you send your slide tube and bbl, you need to disassemble your bolt/carrier and have them done too. I got super lucky and got two sets(bolt and carrier, nos) on ebay recently.

I turned my Coast to Coast Model 267 into a Stevens 77E clone. Found a few sling parts on Numrich, stock on Sarco and used regular M16 sling loops (couldn't get the right size). I dyed the pump with iron acetate and tea, finishing it of with several coats of linseed oil. Don't know if I want to parkerize it or not and the barrel had been chopped to 18.5" but still looks good, fun project. Only "before" picture I could find was while it was on display at a car show in a patrol car.
